Julia Cooper is 21 years old and she is from Poland, OH. It is a really tiny town, the first time she ever sang in front of anyone she was 5-years old. She has always looked for opportunities, she writes songs and she sings. Kelly, Gwen, and John turn around for her.

Judges Comments: John: “I am from Ohio as well and I feel like we were meant to be together and I don’t say that to everyone. You notice that I turned for you first, your tone was super cool, you have a unique way of expressing yourself. I can’t wait to work with you.” Kelly: “You are unique, I don’t think you sound exactly like another person that has come out of here, but I will say, I believe her name is Cami, and she is very soulful like you. I am not saying you are similar, my point is, we don’t have anyone like you. I love how powerful you are, in a like a poetic, cold chill way.” Gwen: “I know how to connect with people through my story, my style and that is where my confidence comes from.” Julia chooses John.

Apropos is 31 years-old from Detroit, MI. He has worked hard to get to this place, he feels it is his time. When he was seven-years-old he began piano lessons and was encouraged to join the choir. Nobody turns around for Apropos.

Judges Comments: John: “You are a very good singer and you have a very good tone, it is very cool and unique. I couldn’t feel the range you had with that performance.” Gwen: “The first couple of notes, I was like whoa, it was shockingly delicious. Please come back.” Kelly: “I was so close to turning around because of your tone, you should have shown your range on a show like this.”

John Sullivan is from Denver, NC., and has a full-time gig playing music, it helps him to come down from playing independent professional baseball. He is singing, “Operator.” Gwen and Blake both turn their chairs.

Judges Comments: John: “What impressed all the most was your tone. Most people come here and they are big a piercing, but with you, it was the intimacy you made us feel with your voice. Good job and congratulations.” Blake: “I love the song choice, Gwen and I listen to a lot of music from the ’70s. I am going to have a hard fight on my hands with Gwen, she loves that music. I loved how it cut through, you had perfect pitch, you are a storyteller and I would be proud to be your coach.” Gwen: “I was just sitting back listening to you sing and I was like this voice is honest, it is giving me peace, I like you and I would love to work with you. I believe we have similar tastes.” John chooses Blake.

Skylar Alyvia Mayton is 15 years old from Grand Rapids, MI. She has always dreamed about being on the show and she hopes Kelly picks her, she thinks she is so amazing. Kelly turns her chair.

Judges Comments: Kelly: “I am so stoked to know that you are that young, it is really awesome. I have a really cute jacket for you, I could basically be your mom. I can’t believe I don’t have to fight for you right now, I am speechless.” Gwen laughs when Kelly says she is speechless.

Lain Roy is 22 from Colorado and he is singing, “Someone You Loved.” This means the world to him, it is kind of daunting, but he knows what he has to do. John is one of his heroes. Gwen and John immediately turn their chairs, John sings along with him.

Judges Comments: Gwen: “You are really a good singer, are you in a band or a writer? (he says he started in a school talent competition) I know I have something to offer, I have been doing this for so long. I bounce between different genres. I would love to work with you.” Lain chooses Gwen.

Jared Ming is 32 years old, he is currently living in Honolulu, HI. Pre COVID he was in a couple of bands. Nobody turns their chairs.

Judges Comments: Gwen: “You range was wide and your pitch incredible but there was pitchiness and it made me unsure. You are a really good singer, keep singing.” John: “There are certain things we can teach and certain we can’t, like that tone you have, it is solid, it’s powerful and it sounds commercial. If you come back, we would love to have you back.” Blake: “Is country music what you envision yourself doing? (I have a passion for the country) Your voice sounds like it may want to soar, which is what you can do in country music.”

Trio, “Worth The Wait” two sisters and mom; Mia, Jaycee and Mama T, they live in a small town called Center, the girls have been singing all of their lives. Their older sister used to sing with them, but she had a baby who has special needs, so their mother has joined them for this journey. They are singing, “when will I be loved.” It’s a four-chair turn.

Judges Comments: Gwen: “I was sitting there and I heard one voice, so I was literally shocked when I turned around. It was like magic, you are crazy cool. I was also in a band with my brother and we wrote songs and sang together, so I know the family thing as well. When it comes to Blake, being a country king, he is so burned out. I have no country singers on my team and I have a lot of support from the country community. (Gwen plays a video of Trace Atkins giving his support of her)” Kelly: “I really enjoyed it, I love that song and the harmonies, we don’t have anyone on the show like you all. I will be honest, there were parts where it was not completely in synch and it has to be dead on. If you choose me I will push you like a choir director. Job well done, congratulations.”

Blake: “I have one spot left on my team and I have been waiting for whatever that was going to be. You need to have songs that make your harmonies soar, I would be proud to be your coach.” John: “I am not an expert of country music, but I did grow up singing with my family and singing in a church as a choir director. I did direct an acapella group. Nobody has spent more time than me on how people should harmonize together, I would love to work with you.” Worth The Wait chooses Blake.

Emmalee is 20 years-old from Clarksville, TN. One year her father bought her a gold club for Christmas and she never used it as one, she used it as a microphone, she knew what she wanted to do. She has decided to do a strip down version of “how will I know,” by Whitney Houston. Kelly and John turn their chairs right away.

Judges Comments: John: “It’s cool, for the last three seasons I have been trying to get someone to do a really cool version of “how will I know” or “I want to dance with somebody,” but they always pick the other choice I give them. And you did it today, and you executed it beautifully. Your voice is lovely, it is crystal clear, I turned for you very quickly, I am all about tone. I would love to work with on team Legend.” Gwen: “I have never heard that song like that, was that your idea (yes).” Kelly: “I think your tone, just like John said, it beautiful and that is why I turned around. I loved Whitney and I loved how you did it. You have no bravado, you have air for days. I would love for you to be on team Kelly.” Emmalee chooses Kelly.

Bailey Rae is 18 years old from Roberta, OK and when she was five years old she joined a professional clogging team. She lives on 15 acres, pastures, and fields as far as you can see. She started singing in the church when she was seven years old. Her family is her biggest supporter, they go to all her gigs. John turns his chair.  
Judges Comments: Blake: “I want to do something that is unprecedented. My team is full, but I want to push my chips in for the Battle Rounds when John completely screws this up. I am making a pitch right now. I am sorry about the coach you are ending up with. John is one of my favorite people on the planet, but he is a horrifying coach. I want you to remember this moment, we are neighbors and we are meant to be.” Kelly: “I would have turned, I just filled my team.” John: “The thing about music that is beautiful, is that it is universal and defies genre. You have the distinction of being the first country artists that I have had the privilege of coaching. We are going to make the most of your experience on The Voice.”
Neci is 32 years old, she is singing, “God bless the child,” and she works at a hospital, she is working towards getting her masters and she is thankful every day for her three babies. Her family means everything to her and she is there today for them. Nobody turns for her.
Judges Comments: Blake: “I can’t really say there was anything wrong with that performance, you are a gifted singer.” John: “You are a gifted vocalist, my only concern was the pitch problems.” Gwen: “I am so fascinated that you can do that bravado.”
Tori Miller is 26 years-old from Siloam Springs, AR. She was raised on classic country, her parents started a classic opry in her home town. Gwen turns her chair.
Judges Comments: Gwen: “I love your voice, how calm you are and soothing, I was like, I want to listen to that. I want to hang out with you, you are on team Gwen.”
James Pyle is 30 years old, he grew up in West Hills, CA. Growing up he was the chapel band drummer. He kept his singing to himself for the most part until age 20. His family means everything to him, his kids are his biggest fans. John turns his chair.
Judges Comments: Kelly: “In the first part of it I wanted to hit my button so hard but my team is full. I love the song selection, I loved what you did with it, I loved the falsetto, I loved everything about it and I am so glad you are on the show.” Gwen: “Your voice is unreal, that is for sure. You are definitely one of the best singers that we have heard. If you are available to steal, I will be stealing you.” John: “I had one slot left on my team, it was a master full performance.”
